Fear of Flowers
You may recall that I had some trouble growing flowers in previous years. This year I committed myself to it and wala! It's been fun, beautiful beyond words and now I'm hooked. These pink and peach creme colored flowers just came up, I was delighted. Cant remember what they're called though. Anyone? And each year I grow about 10 or more of the hot pink globe amaranth. The plant is much like a bush, comes in late summer and remains with flowers through late fall. Then the flowers can be dried, they maintain that hot pink color all winter. I suspect one can extract a dye from it too.
